MEVO + Carry Distance Issue


Knock

Recommended Posts

Hopefully someone with a Mevo + can help. My average 7 iron is consistently between 155 and 165. My indoor Mevo + setup is Mevo 8 feet from ball, ball 9 feet from net, ball hitting area 2", Mevo tilt 0.1 and Mevo angle 12%.

I am getting carry distances consistently between 100 and 120 yards, which its at least 40 yards shorter than my normal carry. Ball path appears accurate. Any ideas why the Mevo+ is reading so short?

Everything consistently short? Ever get any out to 160?

Could be multiple things…

First, are you actually hitting indoors?  I hit into a net in my backyard but have it set to short indoor because of the distance constraints.  If indoors -  There is something to people hitting indoors where they just don’t hit it as far.  Been documented here and other forums such as golfsimulatorforum.com. That forum is a great resource and has a lot of content specific to FlightScope and the Mevo+ 
 

Second, do you have it set as “short” indoor rather than just indoor?  I assume you do, but…

Third, got the metallic dot on?

Fourth, are you certain there is no interference from electrical devices, lights fans, etc in front or above the device?

Fifth, what are you hitting off?  Any chance it’s something that leads to fat shots but you just can’t feel it?

Everything is consistently short. 

I am hitting indoors and had it set to both short indoors and indoors. Both settings were consistently short. I appreciate hitting shorter indoors but not by 40 yards.

Metallic dot on.

No obvious signs of interference. Moved unit around but consistently short.

I can hit and feel fat hits off my matt and distance registered 100 yards. Clean hits are registering 120. Even at my worst, I have never hit a 7 iron that short,

Must be interference but not sure where it's coming from. 

I will take the mevo+ outside tomorrow and see if it still registers short.

Do you have a consistent height surface from the mevo to the net?  I’ve read about people having the concrete floor between the net, ball, and mevo getting weird results

I have Mevo in a closet so the height directly above is 18 " lower than the rest of the room height. I have tried it outside the closet with the same short results.

Took it out to the range and distances were spot on using a rangefinder to confirm. Must be interference in the room. Not sure how to fix that if even possible.

What are the room dimensions?
